In the US press: If we continue to ignore Russia's interests, it will constantly outplay us

80

Russia should be perceived not as we would like to see, but as it is in reality. You should not imagine it as a weak country, deftly playing its games.


This opinion was expressed by the head of the Mike Rogers Center for Intelligence and Global Affairs Joshua Huminski in his article published by the American newspaper The Hill.

The US press notes that, judging by the latest steps of the Joe Biden administration in relation to Russia, they are beginning to implement some kind of strategy, the general meaning of which is not fully understood. Khuminski means by such steps the expansion of the package of military assistance to Ukraine and the strengthening of anti-Russian sanctions.

The expert believes that in order to conduct an effective policy towards Russia, one should clearly understand the motives for its actions. At the same time, it would be a big mistake to explain them by weakness, decline and other shortcomings. Khuminsky believes that the tactics of the Russian authorities are based on a thorough analysis of the situation, because this is exactly what any normal and effective leader does.

If we continue to ignore Russia's interests, it will constantly outplay us.

- the author claims.

According to the expert, one should not dwell on how Moscow is acting. Instead, you should try to understand why it does so. Most importantly, Russia should not be underestimated.

In conclusion, Huminsky cites a statement attributed to several historical figures:

Russia is never as strong as it looks. Russia is never as weak as it seems.

        Not only concave, but also bent inward and inward. That is why all presidents receive the wrong vision, and each of them imagines that Russia is the main enemy that must be destroyed. Otherwise, concavity and concavity cannot be corrected in any way ...

        I was talking somewhere with the percentage of polls on the streets of Nuyorka. Now I don't remember the percentages, but not every American on the street on the world map will show the USA, not every Russia. China is sought in the African region, and Afghanistan in South America. It was confirmed by our own sample in Texas and California - we decided to have fun with our drunk friends.

      These guys are incorrigible.
      Some are trying to directly crush Russia, but this does not work. Others, observing such a situation, offer our country to understand ... In order to win.

      The problem is that none of them is trying, even in theory, to come to a mutually beneficial agreement. This means that you will not be able to understand us!

      For Russians, respect is important. And justice ... And there it is not at all. We tolerate, over and over again we let adversaries approach Moscow! And then they run, losing their pants. Germans, Poles, French ... Now these too will have to be treated.

              Don't talk nonsense. When the USSR entered the war with Japan, the United States already had superiority at sea and in the air, captured Okinawa and made plans to land on the Japanese islands. With or without the USSR, the Americans won the war. The Japanese do not have the resources to wage protracted wars with strong opponents, and no years of war "shone" for them. Even in the Russo-Japanese War, they won victory at the limit of their capabilities, and largely because of the events of the Russian Revolution.

    It's time for the tripods to stop smoking dope. And in general, to realize that their number is sixteenth. I give an introduction:
    * The US is no longer the world's # 1 economy.
    * The United States is waging a trade war with all the significant countries of the world, even with Canada. Exceptions - only Israel and Poland)))
    * The United States gave the state to transnational corporations whose interests are directly opposite to the interests of the United States as a state.
    * And with the resignation of Merkel, which is clearly on the hook, most likely stolen from the Stasi archives, a new generation of politicians will come, on whom there was nothing in the Stasi. And the interests of industrial power # 1 are sharply opposed to those of the United States.
    ------------
    The question is, what should the United States think about? Not about what Russia has there, but about how not to ask your country ... to ask. There are no allies, some enemies, the country is in decline, by inertia it will live for another 20 years, but it is already crumbling

If Merkel will be replaced, Germany's break with the United States is quite possible for this very reason, right up to direct confrontation with the withdrawal from all blocs in general, such as NATO. And then France will catch up - that is, the EU will become enemies. And a very non-illusory option

    Why do you need a helicopter? No more money to spend? For example, for housing, for a wheelbarrow, for electronics, for leisure, for travel. I xs what you argue with obviousness. Well, I like the difference in salaries to be paid with a penny - just say so. Calculations on the prices of everything in the states can be found on the Internet, but you still never accept them in your life, so I don't even see any point in looking.

    Russia is never as strong as it looks. Russia is never as weak as it seems.
    Who knew the Americans had philosophers in their country? The fact that they are the biggest liars is yes, but philosophers are something new.

    And the Yankees are generally unable to understand Russia, because they are fixated on their "pseudo-exclusiveness"!

    They will achieve that they will be removed from the “queens” to “pawns” from the political chessboard in matters of hydrocarbons and bioresources.

    You are right on the planet there are few real cheap nishtyaks.

      It was still not enough to outplay in taxes, then it is definitely not possible to lose the primacy.

      We take 45 percent of the rich. 13 low income or not taking at all. My income is low $ 1500. I don’t pay tax, but I have enough for life and remains.

    judging by the prices in grocery stores, the ruble exchange rate against the western currency and the level of salaries, we have been outplayed long ago. Of course, Ocean's 13 friends are not scared with their billions, but the rest, when 90% goes to the economy grocery basket and the payment of housing and communal services, is no laughing matter

    Everything is very simple! America stupidly wants to see Russia the way it wants to see it! They just cannot understand what is EXCEPT for the national interests of America. someone may have their own national interests! They believe that there are ONLY American national interests, and whoever does not meet their national interests is a threat to them and it is necessary to impose sanctions against them, carry out HUMANITARIAN carpet and precision bombing! That's all!
